5 Matching questions

  1. low
  2. Coriolis Effect
  3. Convection Current
  4. isobar
  5. Mercury Barometer
  1. a a line on a weather map that joins points having the same barometric pressure
  2. b The way Earth's rotation makes winds in the Northern Hemisphere curve to the right and winds in the Southern Hemisphere curve to the left.
  3. c an area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air
  4. d An instrument that measures changes in air pressure, consisting of a glass tube partially filled with mercury, with its open end resting in a dish of mercury. Air pressure pushing on the mercury in the dish forces the mercury in the tube to be higher.
  5. e the movement of a fluid, caused by differences in temperature, that transfers heat from one part of the fluid to another

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. an area in which the barometric pressure is greater than that of the surrounding air
  2. narrow belt of strong winds that blows near the top of the troposphere across the US
  3. a front where a warm air mass is caught between two colder air masses and brings cool temperatures and large amounts of rain and snow
  4. the resistance encountered when one body is moved in contact with another. Slows down the speed of wind when it flows over land
  5. Area of low pressure where wind will move towards, associated with cloudy and rainy weather and air that is rising

5 True/False questions

  1. Air Massa body of air that has about the same temperature and moisture throughout

          

  2. Frontan area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air

          

  3. warm frontforms when cold air moves under warm air which is less dense and pushes air up

          

  4. Highan area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air

          

  5. aneroid barometerAn instrument that measures changes in air pressure, consisting of a glass tube partially filled with mercury, with its open end resting in a dish of mercury. Air pressure pushing on the mercury in the dish forces the mercury in the tube to be higher.
